Segway Owner Dies in Segway Accident

How ironic!

Jimi Heselden, the millionaire owner of the Segway firm, has died in an apparent Segway accident in the UK.

From Reuters:

Jimi Heselden, 62, who bought the U.S.-based firm, and who was also chairman of Hesco Bastion, was discovered in a river near Leeds, northern England, Sunday.

The incident, described as a freak accident in the media, was not being treated as suspicious. A Segway was found near his body, a police spokeswoman said. “It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Jimi Heselden has died in a tragic accident near his home in West Yorkshire,” Hesco Bastion said in a statement.

A family spokesman said speculation about the cause of his death had been deeply upsetting.

“There is absolutely nothing to suggest it was anything other than a tragic accident,” he said in a statement.
